Looking Place Prostration
LOOKING PLACE PROSTRATION
At the time of doing the prayer, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam bowed his head and his gaze to the place of prostration. It is based on a hadith narrated by Umm Faithful ‘A’isha radi’ anha:
“The Messenger sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam did not take his eyes from the prostrate (in prayer).”
(Narrated by Bayhaqi and classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Albani).
Prohibition look to the sky
Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam forbade look to the sky (when praying). From Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wasallam said:
“Let a group of people actually stop her eyes uplifted to the sky while praying in the prayer or they should really keep their eye sight.”
(Narrated by Muslim, Nasa’i and Ahmad).
Prophet also prohibits a person turns to the right or left when praying, he said:
“If you pray, do not turn to the right or left because God will always exposes his face to the servants who were praying for he did not look right or left.”
(Narrated by Tirmidhi and Hakim).
In Zaadul Ma’aad (I/248) stated that its legal makruh people who were praying turned his head without any purpose. Ibn Abd al-Bar said, “Jumhur bring scholars say turned a light does not cause prayers to be damaged.”
Dimakruhkan also praying in something that could destroy the concentration or where there are pictures, prayer rugs on the existing painting or engraving, before the walls with her image and so on.
